  1. The live stuff is consistently inventive.... Randomness dogs the remixes, but that's standard.

    This double-album (half drawn from last year's live shows; the other half remixes by producers including Will Ward, Scratcha DVA and Berlin club DJ Luca Lozano) catches the sweeping big-venue confidence and charisma of Portico Quartet's recent performances with a rare balance of studio-like clarity and audience presence.

    [The glitchy beats and samples] gives them a whole new playground but even the most synthesized moments here sound natural and unforced. [May 2013, p.109]

    Though their sound seems delicate and ethereal, in a live setting the quartet's music yields plenty of compelling sonic drama. [May 2013, p.94]
